Development of cultural banks to produce mussels in the Limfjord (3418)

Project Details


The aim of the project is to initiate a targeted research and development of cultivation of blue mussels in bottom cultures, by use of relaying and transplanting techniques, as this area-intensive form of production in the future will be the most productive and sustainable methodology. It will be tested whether bottom cultures can be established by stimulating natural spat fall by improving the substrate. The knowledge generated will partly facilitate the optimization of production methods and partly form the basis for developing a management plan for mussel production, including bottom culture cultivation.

The project was coordinated by DTU Aqua.
